Health wise, I know a bit more, but I am no further forward towards a resolution, my Orthopaedic Surgeon, has now said he is going to operate on both knees, but due to my age, they wont do a replacement, because hopefully I would still be alive when they had worn out, so he is going to try and clean up the joints, and thinks that should last me a few years, I am having an MRI on my right knee on Tuesday, this is the latest part of my body to collapse, and probably more painful than the left one.
I had a bone gammagraphy to try and resolve the problem on my spinal column, but it doesn't reveal anything, now I am waiting to be referred for tests on my colon to see it that is putting pressure on the spine, but my family Doctor is away, and I can't see him until October 7th, I wont go to another Doc, because I know I will end up being sent elsewhere, so I will just have to grin and bear it for the time being.
The reason for this post! Last week I cut back our Dame de la Noche shrub, as it appeared to be dying back, and it is just as well I did, because last night, I discovered subsidence under the pathway leading to the house, there is a problem with this further away from the house, but I put that down to the path having been laid on the grass without preparation, maybe I was wrong, this is definitely more serious. I started by poking a stick under the path, and there was only air!
As a result I dug out an access
It goes down nearly a meter and back at least the same again, I have dug the hole out from both side of the path (now the animals have a tunnel), makes it easier to assess the situation, and to fill with concrete!
